“Jesus said to his disciples:
‘I am the true vine,
and my Father is the vine grower.
He takes away every branch in me
that does not bear fruit,
and every one that does
he prunes so that it bears more fruit.’”
What is your initial response to these words of Jesus?
Have you ever been “pruned” of something that blocked your “bearing fruit” even though you didn’t see it that way at the time?
What do you realize now in “God’s time”?
Heritage word—“Our heart should resemble a honeycomb, which will yield only honey when cut and wounded.”
